We all have something that we are fearful of. It might be that you are fearful of heights, fearful of spiders, fearful of your finances, fearful of your health, or fearful of not being good enough. No matter what you are fearful of, that feeling does not come from God.
If you are fearful or worried about something this verse is for you.
“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.”
To really live by this verse it’s an everyday process. A lot of the time we just want to try and deal with the fear on our own. For me sometimes I will share this verse with someone when they are worried about something and I tell them to really give it to God, but then I find myself struggling to really listen to this in my own personal life. Here is what God has been really showing me about this:
God is so cool, He knows exactly what we need, He even knows what we need before we know we need it. He already knows what we are fearful of, He just wants us to come to Him. Let me tell you, I really have been praying for God to just take my worries away and take the weight off of me. I can’t carry it on my own, and that’s one of the great things about God, He doesn’t want us to carry that weight. Once we go to God with our fears and worries, He takes it and fills us with a peace that only He can fill us with.
God doesn’t want us to be trapped by our fear, He wants us to live in freedom. If you want to live in that freedom check out the “Freedom From All Fear” devotional on the Bible app.
I want to challenge you with this. Next time you are fearful of something I want you to go straight to God and pray about it. Tell Him what you need, but make sure you are also thanking Him for all He is doing and will do in your life. I would love to hear how God breaks your chains from your fear. If you have any stories after you do this challenge, head to my contact page and send me a message.
I am praying that you ask God to take away your fears and that He breaks chains so you can live in that freedom!
